The Courseware Management area looks to mirror a one-to-one relationship with how content is structured in your Training Center. Consolidating both Categories and Courses into one view and bringing more informative and actionable details to the surface – provides a greater ease of navigating, searching and managing all your Courseware needs.
Creating and administering Courseware primarily consists of three core functions that share one Content Container – these are centralized under the Courseware Management umbrella (or section navigation). Select one below to read a more technical breakdown of each section:
Create, Manage and Organize Courseware Content.
Upload and store all media assets – videos, images and documents.
Create and Manage Interactive Video projects.
If you have access to more than one VT System, you will first need to select a Content Container to manage.
